Lyrics to "Lightly Row" solo.  (Joyfully sing it while you are playing outdoors or doing chores!)

Lightly row, lightly row, gently down the stream we go.
Birds are singing, while they're winging,
On their way and too and fro.
See the fluffy clouds up there,
Building castles in the air.
Trees are swaying, children playing, while they dream and lightly row.
